Customer Love Notes: A Tea Time Favorite

Nerd alert: one of our favorite things to do is read the customer reviews in the Birchbox Shop. You all are an opinionated bunch—and we like it! We especiallylove the love letters you write to your favorite products. (Though we’re still waiting on the haikus and iambic pentameter.) From time to time, we’ll be highlighting extrasweet customer serenades. Next up, a sweet, aromatic, and organic tea blend


In 1996, husband-and-wife duo Gary Shinner and Jill Portman opened an unassuming teahouse on San Francisco’s Fillmore Street. Word got out, and the success of their enterprise led them to create their own brand of specialty teas. Nowadays, Mighty Leaf Tea Company creates top-notch blends for discerning tea drinkers from coast to coast. Here’s what some Birchbox fans had to say: 

"I don’t drink tea very often so when this sample arrived, it quickly found a home in my kitchen cabinets. Coffee is often my drink of choice but an out-of-the-blue springtime cold had me feeling under the weather, and this little bag was just what I needed. The taste is strong but not overbearing— most teas I’ve had are very weak in flavor—but this was delicious. A little bit of honey and my throat was feeling much better. Will definitely be getting more in the future, maybe even trying the others from the brand."- Stephanie 

I’ve been a tea drinker since middle school and this tea was one of the best I’ve had. One bag was enough to get quality flavor when following the convenient brewing instructions. I was particularly impressed by the green tea’s smooth finish since other green teas I’ve had tend to have a funky after taste. The chamomile was my favorite though. I’ve already bought two boxes and know I’ll be buying more when I run out.”- Giraffe1182

I am usually a coffee drinker and I feel like this tea could change that. I loved that you could actually see the tea leaves and even flowers in the tea bag, which was so cool. Plus, the smell was amazing. I think I am converting from coffee to Mighty Leaf Tea!!” - Stephanieocnj
